Travel Video: Sorsogon's Malawmawan Island

The province of Sorsogon is located at the southernmost tip of the Bicol Peninsula which faces an island that's already part of the Visayas region which is Samar. It made me realize that I've never been to any province in the Visayas region and how I've been yearning to see the Biri Rock Formation in Samar too. Oh well, I will some other time. But first, I'd like to share our recent weekend visit to a private island somewhere in Castilla, Sorsogon.  

Best known in the recent years as a home that caters to the gentle giants locally known as butandings, Sorsogon as I found out has more to offer than the famous whale shark watching. It has gorgeous beaches  and with most towns lie along the coast. you can never have a shortage of fresh seafood.

We chose to enjoy our long weekend of August in Albay and Sorsogon with the overnight camping in Malawmawan Island as the highlight of the trip. I was with my uncle, my youngest sister, cousin and nephew. Partly, we were there to 'work', surveying the island with my brilliant cousin, a landscape architect  and for me to document the area at its almost pristine state. We braved the sea, sun, stones and sands. I was at my happiest. Let me share with you version 1 of the travel video taken during our Sorsogon trip:

I Will Walk For A Scholar

Just three days after the infamous 'rain with no name' wreaked havoc all over the flooded metro including nearby provinces, I geared up for a 2 hour commute to QC. I have already canceled a production shoot because of impassable roads and I don't want to miss this another chance to extend my support for the next day's event. I armed myself with my version of survival kit along with a few clothes on my backpack just in case I get stranded on the road.

Thankfully, the sun was smiling all throughout that Saturday. In God's grace I was able to safely reached my uncle's house in Novaliches and we're all excited for the big early morning event. I'm glad it pushed through.

I will walk for a scholar.

PWDs Warmly Receive Wheelchairs Through Dolefil's Alay Gabay Program

     "Dole is our partner for progress," is the common message of local government officials as they laud on Dolefil's "exceptional" line-up of CSR activities, most especially the Alay Gabay Para sa Maginhawang Buhay Program (Alay Gabay) during this year's series of town-to-town visits (Wheelchairs Turnover Caravan) which kicked-off on June 13 at the Dolefil Gym in Polomolok, South Cotabato.

Dolefil's Alay Gabay Program has been giving mobility to persons with disabilities (PWDs) and hope to their families for four (4) years now. From only 305 units and covering only two provinces in 2009, the Alay Gabay Program has become bigger this year, reaching out to over 1,800 PWDs in both the whole of SoCSKSarGen region and Bukidnon - a blessing made possible through the generosity of the Alay Gabay Golf Tournament sponsors and our friends from Westlake Village, Dole Food Company's headquarters in USA.
